Florida Prepaid is not technically financial aid, so it does not disburse with aid. Florida Prepaid is a tuition plan that pays per credit hour and is determined by the plan purchased for the student. Your current Florida Prepaid credit hour rate can be found in ONE.UF by looking at your last term’s benefit amount then dividing it by the number of credits registered. Contact Florida Prepaid for your account information at 1-800-552-GRAD.
Students earning UF credit
If you are earning UF credit on your study abroad program, the UF Bursar will invoice the Florida Prepaid College Plan after the term’s drop/add date. The benefit funds will then be processed through the student’s ONE.UF account. To check the status of your Study Abroad UF credit benefit, call the Bursar’s office at 352-392-0181 or email firstname.lastname@example.org (Third Party Billing). Put STUDY ABROAD in the subject line.
Students earning transfer credit
If you are earning transfer credit through your study abroad program, you must complete and return the Florida Prepaid Request Form to the UF International Center (UFIC). Students who have the Florida Prepaid dorm plan and would like one term of dorm benefit to use for study abroad costs must also complete the form. UFIC will invoice the Florida Prepaid Plan after the student’s program begins. These funds will then be released to UFIC about 6-8 weeks after the start of the program.
Upon disbursement, the funds will be applied to outstanding program charges for a UF Sponsored study abroad program. If all study abroad related payments are paid, a check will be mailed to the U.S. address indicated on the form. Funds cannot be direct deposited in this case.
